Nexus 5 price concerns considering rumored specs

While we still do not know if Google plans to release the Nexus 5 later this year, there is growing speculation that we will hear something at next months I/O event, so for now we have to just take what we see with a grain of salt. We say this because we have already seen a multitude of concepts, renders and also rumored specs.

This is what concerns us, because if you were to believe these Nexus 5 specs, then what sort of price do you think we will pay? The Nexus 4 has a decent amount of features, but Google and LG have had to make a few sacrifices in order to keep the cost of the handset down. Okay, we know if you buy from a third-party the price is a lot more, but it’s still lower than some of the smartphones from key rivals.

Let’s take some of the most recent rumors into consideration; some sources would have you believe that LG will put their name to the Nexus 5 and offer a host of top-tier specs, such as a 5.2-inch Full HD display and a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.

This also sounds like the same hardware that a HTC built Nexus 5 would come with, if this recent concept is anything to go by. However, the screen is a little smaller than the one above and looks a lot like the BlackBerry Z10.

There have also been rumors of a Nexus 5 coming with a massive 4GB or RAM and a powerful 5,000 mAh battery. If all or some of these were to come true, then we would have some Nexus 5 price concerns, as Google and whoever will manufacture the handset will have a tough job at keeping the price at a competitive level, which has been the key success of the Nexus 4.
